PSG club president Al-Khelaifi vows not let Mbappe leave for free

Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe must sign a new contract if he wants to stay at the club, says president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

Mbappe sent a letter to PSG last month stating he had no intention of extending his contract, which expires in 2024, meaning he could leave for free next summer - a situation Al-Khelaifi is desperate to avoid.

The France striker later clarified he had not asked the club to allow him to move to Spanish giants Real Madrid, who have tried and failed to land the World Cup-winner in the past.

PSG face the dilemma of allowing Mbappe to run down the final 12 months of his contract and being unable to recoup any of the €180m (£153.8m) they spent to sign him from Monaco in 2017.

"My position is very clear. I don't want to repeat it every time: if Kylian wants to stay, we want him to stay. But he needs to sign a new contract," Al-Khelaifi told reporters after unveiling Luis Enrique as the club's new manager.
